Finally, he’s socking it to Obama.

4) Expanding choice in our schools. He pointedly observed: “Kids first, and unions behind them.”
5) Restoring economic freedom in a major way. Said Romney: “Our economy is driven by people pursuing their ideas and dreams. It’s not driven by government. And what the president is doing is crushing economic freedom.”
And those were not the only highlights. Romney also noted how the Obama administration had a shameful record of rewarding businesses that have provided campaign contributions with loans and loan guarantees.
And he scoffed (just as Bastiat did in my article) at the notion that governments created wealth whenever they built a road or bridge or other public project. Who paid for that road or bridge? Romney asked (as Bastiat did before him). It is the taxpayer — whether as an individual or as a business. Should the taxpayer pay twice for the same road or bridge?
We have a president who has no experience in the world of commerce and who has no use for business or free enterprise. He has never met a payroll or earned a profit — and he seems to think that anyone who tries to do those things is most likely to be out to cheat his customers and to treat his employees with contempt. As Romney has said, he has “the most anti-business, anti-investment, anti-jobs administration I’ve ever seen.”
If there is one thing that this nation cannot afford — a bigger calamity even than our $15 trillion national debt — it is four more years of Barack Obama.
Let’s hope that Mitt Romney continues to make that point loud and clear.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
